Winston Churchill 2013:
He ages so well.
Winston is the statue that I see most in DC. He presides over a large portion of Mass Ave where I often go for runs, and he actually has become a pretty regular goal-marker for me. Typically in this way: "If I can just get to Winston, then I can walk." (Or breathe, if I haven't run in a while...) It's worth noting that the #1 statue I see in the capital city of a nation that rebelled from its mother country is a statue of a man from that mother country. My my, how far we have come!
And -- that the prince from that mother country comes to visit his former subjects.....
Lord knows I would have been in that crowd snapping a pic of Prince Harry last week if I worked on the Hill, but the closet I came to him was visiting the British Embassy two days after Harry had dinner there. I talked to the head chef of the Embassy who cooked for Harry...
He is saying "Wowww! Harry ate a ton of summer pudding!"
What's summer pudding??
I don't really know, but Harry ate it!
In this room!
and that's all I've got!
I mean not really -- I've got a lot. For starters, Prince Harry doesn't have this blue-tongue cutie to hang out with during Girls on the Run:
Oh wait, maybe he does.....
Spring has sprung in DC! Or maybe now it's summer? FINALLY. Yesterday was the first day I have gone outside in the evening and not needed a sweater. Now that is cause to celebrate.
